Samsung recently debuted the Galaxy Note8 at its Unpacked event in New York. Although pre-orders went live for the device a little over a week ago, it appears that a new promotion has been put into place to pique consumers' interest.
According to a new pre-order page that recently went live on the T-Mobile website, the wireless carrier is offering a "buy one, get one free" promotion for anyone that is pre-ordering the Galaxy Note8. However, this offer won't be strictly limited to just another Note8, with subscribers having the option to opt for a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+.
Similar to offers in the past, those who want to take advantage of the promo will be required to sign up for a new line for the second phone and will need to utilize the carrier's Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).
The way EIP works is that subscribers will be required to put down a certain amount and then make a set monthly payment over a 24 month period. In the case of the Galaxy Note8, a $210 down payment will be necessary along with a payment of $30 a month. Those that opt for the Galaxy S8 will need to put $30 down and pay $30 a month, while the Galaxy S8+ will require $80 down and $30 a month. In order to get reimbursed for the second handset, making it free, customers will need to submit a rebate and wait for up to eight weeks until a Prepaid MasterCard is issued for the full amount of the phone.
Although the Galaxy Note8 is set to make its official retail debut on September 15 in the United States, those that have already pre-ordered from T-Mobile have seen indications that they may be getting the handset a bit early. Also, don't forget to take advantage of the freebies Samsung is offering with every qualifying purchase.
The wireless carrier is expected to shake up the industry once again with its upcoming Un-carrier Next event that is scheduled for September 6.
